Very good Thai food. We stumbled across this restaurant in La Jolla & were very pleased. Ginger chicken was delicious. Absolutely fabulous mango sticky rice dessert!

We had a party of 9 on the patio with two dogs. It was a lovely evening. Everything was delicious. The chicken dish had a little "tough" stuff in it . That is usually a red flag to me to stop chewing and switch to something else. But the veggies and light oils and selections were all very nice.
I have had better.

Thai food beautifully prepared and served by a fine staff. Intimate, quiet setting for couples, families and/or business talk. Large and varied authentic menu, soups, noodle dishes, seafood & variety of seasonings to fit your taste. Very reasonable pricing, beautiful place. You will be made comfortable even if not familiar with Thai dishes. We go to La Jolla every year and never miss a visit here, and have never been disappointed. That has to be some kind of record.

My colleague and I stumbled on to this fantastic Thai food restaurant in the middle of driving around Girard Ave looking for a parking spot. We happened to land right in front of the open air dining "foyer" of Spice & Rice... so we sat down.

Turned out to be a truly enjoyable dinner with a wide range of spices and flavors. The Green Curry dish was great, we had it w/ tofu, but I'm sure it will hold up w/ any of the other choices of meats. The Phad Thai, a traditional benchmark of Thai comfort food was filled w/ very fresh ingredients!

The Tom Yum Seafood soup is a must have... and get a side of rice to help w/ the wonderful spiciness of the soup!

We weren't too hungry and thought a little Thai would be a great choice, it was! I love spicy food and I'm wise enough to just order medium plus ...great! They had wonderful rice and noodle selections and give the lunch prices into the early evening.
